ACTIVITIES: Hands-on quilting on home sewing machine.
The purpose of the group is to learn how to do FEARLESS free motion quilting using a darning foot.
Meg Shellenberger will show all of the steps in the process of planning, marking, making the "quilt sandwich", preparing to quilt as well as the actual stitching. She shows how to remove all fears from getting started and how to get good results. She will suggest some helpful tools you will find useful.

BRING A VARIETY OF NEEDLES YOU HAVE ON HAND, ESP. 90-14 SHARPS (MICROTEX 90-14 IF YOU ARE BUYING NEEDLES).

3 PRACTICE PADS - MAKE QUILT SANDWICHES APPROX. 15 TO 18 “ SQUARE WITH ANY TYPE OF BATTING. ANY QUILT FABRIC WILL WORK. IT IS HELPFUL TO HAVE A PRINT ON ONE SIDE AND A PLAIN ON THE OTHER. MUSLIN WORKS WELL FOR THE PLAIN SIDE.
A PIECE OF GLASS ABOUT 15” x 20” IS A VERY HELPFUL TOOL. WRAP THE EDGES IN BLUE PAINTERS TAPE FOR SAFETY.

LIGHTS, GLOVES, STENCILS, MARKING PENS & PENCILS
